The Messy Project!

It's HERE!!! 

The Messy Project

July 18th is finally here and I am finally able to share a really really fun project I have been blessed to be a part of for the last month! 

I know you've seen the button, have seen the tweets, and have read a time or two about 
The Messy Project! Well the day has finally arrived to share it with all of you! 

I am sure y'all are wondering what The Messy Project really is...
Here goes...

The awesome thing about fashion and making it our own is that we can all look at a blouse, skirt, or even a pair of shoes and wear and style it the way our fashion sense tells us to. Because of our own personal style we can wear the same thing as the next person but yet look completely different! It is what makes us all unique and allows us to be our own Rachel Zoe. 

Kelly over at Messy.Dirty.Hair developed The Messy Project for several reasons. One being, the gal is a true fashionista at heart and wanted to do something different than any other blogger. Two, she wanted to put, not only her creative mind to work, but several other blogger buddies minds as well. And Lastly, she wanted to show our readers and fans that our own personal style no matter the type can ALL look fabulous. 

The Project:

1 Blouse
5 Bloggin' Buddies
5 Different Styles
1 HUGE Blog Post Party

Kelly picked out this top for all five of us gals to wear for The Messy Project. We were told to do whatever we wanted with the top! Wear and style it how we would if we had bought it ourselves! There were no rules!

I spend a lot of time at work and decided that making this top work appropriate would be my goal! Because of it's sheerness I put a black tank under it, paired it with a black A-line skirt, black pointy toe pumps and my infamous goes-with-everything black Coach purse. Yes, a lot of black but in a corporate environment you want to keep things as professional looking as possible. Plus, with a blouse of this color, the black plays it down and keeps it from being too loud in an office environment! 

As far as jewelry, I just wore simple silver. I added 2 bangles and 2 other bracelets to my watch wrist and wore silver dangled earrings. I'm all about simplicity and tend to shy away from loud jewelry especially at work. 

What do y'all think?!

I know you want to see how the other four gals styled their shirts! So give them a visit and check them out! They all turned out freaking stellar! And I have a new found love for each of these gorgeous ladies! 

I have to thank Kelly for putting this all together and creating such a fun and unique blogging event!! She did so much of the hard work, like shopping, mailing, and organizing it all! You ROCK girlfriend!! 

And thank you loves for hanging in there as we worked on this surprise project! I really hoped you all enjoyed it! Kelly will be doing this monthly so if you want to participate in the next event be sure to let her know!!! 

Hope you all are having the most fabulous Wednesday!!! Half of the week down, Half of the week to go! Sounds good to me!!
